This looks like one of the most simple and cheap organizing solutions I have seen. Simply get a hot pad, decorate it if you wish, sew some plastic baggies down the center, trim away the excess, sew on a button, and it’s ready to use!
This idea is presented as a purse organizer — which would be great — but I also envision it as a series of tuck-away, soft-sided “envelopes” to view my assorted special beads and other small items. The plastic baggies let you see each one from both sides and allow you to find what you need in a quick glance. Excellent idea! 😀
